Plan Your Funeral With Golden Charter Trust.

With the Independent Way plan, we will make sure that your loved ones will be spared much of the burden of organising a funeral. You’ll have specified every detail in advance and taken care of all the costs that are within our control.

No matter how much our services may rise in cost in years to come, once your plan is fully in place, neither you nor your loved ones will be asked for a penny more for them. It’s a guarantee that gives you peace of mind. You can be assured that your family will be spared what could be a financial worry.

There are some costs which we are obliged to pay on your behalf. They are known as disbursements and include the charges of cemeteries and crematoria , as well as doctors fee’s for the cremation certificates, the fees of clergy or officiants and the costs of the newspaper notices and memorials. The amount of this expenditure is not within our control and may require a further payment at the time of need.

Most plans holders pay in full for their plan in a single payment, the benefits of this include that your plan is in place as soon as we have accepted your application and all the relevant paperwork has been completed.

It is possible to pay for your plan ( at no extra cost ) over a 12 month period by direct debit. If you choose this option your plan will not be in place until the final payment is made. Should you pass away before making the final payment, your family or estate will be given the choice of making all outstanding payments or having a full refund of the amount paid.

A funeral plan is an easy way to arrange the funeral you want in advance. A plan allows you to specify your wishes and pay for the funeral director’s services included in your plan. As our customers often tell us, that can bring peace of mind to you and your family. A plan from Golden Charter also includes an allowance towards third party costs. These are essential, non-funeral director services such as the cremation or burial fees, plus the minister or officiant’s fee to perform the service.

At Tynedale Family Funeral Directors we work in partnership with Golden Charter to provide you with a safe and reliable way to plan ahead. As one of the UK’s largest funeral plan providers*, Golden Charter has helped 900,000 people make funeral provisions** so we’re completely confident in offering their plans to you.

Everyone has different needs when it comes to funeral planning, so we make sure the plans we offer are as flexible as possible.
